Fodor's Expert Review Racines

$$$ Les Grands Boulevards Wine Bar

Originally a cave à manger (a wine bar/bistro) serving natural wines and top-quality French fare, the foodie world rejoiced when adulated chef Simone Tondo took the helm and introduced a small but stellar menu of Italian comfort dishes mixed with classic French stalwarts The old tile floors, wood tables, and location in the atmospheric Passage des Panoramas, Paris's oldest covered arcade, only add to the ambience. It's utterly packed at mealtimes, so be sure to reserve in advance.
